DH and I had to pick up our tags this week, so a trip to Dade City FL was required.  This always includes a trip to Quilts on Plum Lane.  I had fun chatting with the manager, who I've known for almost as long as I've been quilting.  I did pick up 2 yards of a wonderful stripe fabric that was on sale!  I plan to use some of it to demo a quick table runner.

I twisted my knee recently, and this week it has been quite painful, so has been slowing me down!  I have been doing some piecing and pressing, with my ironing board lowered so I can use it while in my chair.  I have only been standing to cut for short periods.  No matter how hard I try to stay still, I still find myself  hobbling around all day!

DH picked some more kumquats, so he made more marmelade this week.  When he picked me up after the quilt group pot luck, he tried a piece of coffee cake made by our hostess Nancy - which also included kumquats.  Today he plans to make his own coffee cake, after getting a copy of Nancy's recipe!

This evening, we're having a Christmas song/ carol sing at the clubhouse.  DH is playing his guitar, along with a piano, drums, trumpet, and some songs played by the tone chime group and the choir.  It should help get everyone in the holiday spirit!

Check out all the stash reports at Judy's blog, Patchwork Times.
